It's very easy to get to Paradise Island (Beach)...there are water taxis available right at the pier or you can take a land taxi...we took a van which was really reasonable. We had the driver drop us off at the Atlantis resort. It was beautiful. The entrance to the public beach is a short walk away (maybe a block). We rented beach chairs on the beach. We walked over to the beach area of the Atlantis, walked right up to their pool and swam and enjoyed their pool with no problem. It was great!
